Traumatology (from Greek “Trauma” meaning injury or wound) is the study of wounds and injuries caused by accidents or violence to a person, and the surgical therapy and repair of the damage.
It is often considered a subset of surgery and in countries without the specialty of trauma surgery it is most often a sub-specialty to orthopedic surgery. Traumatology may also be known as accident surgery.
Cases that do not require major surgery can be treated at FirstMed. We provide cast, braces, splint, crutches, laceration and other means of attendance.
